Winter Solstice ~ The Secret Power of Women

Pic from ~ ~

Winter Solstice yowls and howls, my holiday-romping and regal Felines... mild temps on the tame prairie... but, a wool blanket might as well have been covering the sky.

Winter Solstice ~ The Secret Power of Women... as the Kougaress pondered on the cosmic forces lining up during this Lunar Eclipse marriage to the Winter Solstice, she felt the mental wand tap, that ah-ha moment of knowing... at one time in our pre-history women worked and created together. They could keep their people protected and prosperous by simply using their natural magick, and willing it.

In these times, and since recorded history, every evil effort has been made to keep women, and everyone, divided against each other. This has kept us from knowing and using our true power as women. It has also brought us to this time of horror, economic collapse and cruel chaos.

A circle of women who are devoted to their people would never allow this Dark Ages state of affairs to occur. They would never allow Monsanto, for example. Nor would they allow the BIG OIL companies to exist... not when using alcohol and other natural resources would keep humanity free rather than enslaved.

Lest you believe this is a male-bashing moment... no... the Kougaress adores men in general... plus, most men are in the same boat... just as downtrodden, and kept castrated by THOSE who want global rule over ALL of us.

Of course, the challenge becomes, how do we as women return to our natural power? It seems as though a whole lot of women don’t own a clue... yet, now is THE TIME that the feminine will ‘awaken’ as never before, while remaining in harmony with the masculine force. The faster this occurs, the better off we’ll ALL be.

The energies of the Lunar Eclipse intertwined with the energies of the Winter Solstice is the TURNING POINT. We have arrived at a new epoch in time, that of the feminine force and masculine force not only hand-fasting with each other, but enhancing each other in beautiful and profound ways that cannot even be imagined currently.

The tail-switching holiday moment: No, the Kougaress IS NOT anywhere near the last mad whirl of shopping before Christmas. ~Happy, happy cat dance here~

Your Monday Wake-Up Call, and This Week's Episode
by Pat Cunningham

Here's a little something to get the blood flowing on a Monday. It was also my inspiration for the M/M vampire story Siren just accepted. They’ve mentioned a May 2011 e-pub date. I haven’t even gotten the contract yet, so it’s way too soon to post excerpts. I’ll start pushing those closer to release day, along with a new blog, probably on the thin line between inspiration, homage and plagiarism.


The Kougar will post in her usual Tuesday slot, on the 21st. Her bloggie isn’t done. However here’s one of the first paragraphs ~

White Fang balanced himself on the narrow ledge outside of Damien Hancock’s mountainside mansion. Watching the eye glints of Hancock’s pack sentinels, he avoided detection as he inched toward the office window, designed to look down upon the town of Talbot’s Peak.

Cowboys for Christmas Released December 17th from Aspen Mountain Press
By Destiny Blaine

Cowboys for Christmas is now available from Aspen Mountain Press. Following one of my all-time western ménage best sellers, Domination Plantation, Cowboys for Christmas made its debut just in time for the holidays. I hope you'll stop by ~ ~ and read more about this novella.

Julie Kensworth opens her door to more than a blizzard and greets two wayward cowboys. She realizes right away she’s headed straight for the eye of the storm.

Brandon Blake and Quinn Stewart are a long way from home. They’re looking for a warm place to hang their hats while they try to wait out the snow and ice, which continues to gain momentum.

Julie is an author and she’s not just the average writer, she’s one of the most notorious writers in the world. When Quinn and Blake figure out Julie is an erotic romance author, well, needless to say, their minds churn with all sorts of ideas, most of them geared toward how they can heat up the cold winter nights ahead.


A Conversation with Mistletoe
by Linda Banche

Greetings all, I am Mistletoe. You know me--the green plant with white berries you most often see at Christmas time. My association with Christmas arises because I am an evergreen and will remain green even in the dead of winter, but you can see me all year if you know where to look. Mainly on apple and oak trees.

1 + 1 + 1 = Story
By Pat Cunningham

(Note: this post originally appeared on Shapeshifter Seductions back in January 2010. The book in question, under the title "Belonging," was recently accepted by Siren. That's how long it takes me to write something. E-pub date is tentatively scheduled for May 2011.

From ~

December 21st marks the annual Winter Solstice, and with it comes your chance to start afresh -- or to at least get the gears in motion.

In ancient times, the Winter Solstice was a day for celebration. The shortest day of the year, it meant that the sun would soon return, providing more light and warmth. It also represented rebirth and a chance for new beginnings. Though we may no longer carry out festivals quite like our ancient ancestors, the meaning and power of the Winter Solstice remain the same.

On December 21, the sun will move into Capricorn, as it always does this time of year. Capricorn is symbolized by the mountain goat, which is emblematic of the sure-footedness and focus embraced by those influenced by Capricorn. Right now, it won't matter what your own sun sign is: as long as the sun is in Capricorn, you'll feel the effects. That means this is great time to kick start plans for your New Year's resolutions. Put together your list now, and consider different approaches you can take to ensure that you stick with your resolutions more easily in the coming year.

This same day will mark another important astrological event: the lunar eclipse in Gemini. A lunar eclipse is a powerful full moon that occurs only twice a year. They generally bring some sort of challenge to your spiritual development, and this eclipse is no different. You'll feel a heightened awareness to all that surrounds you, but specifically, you'll notice a rather distinct tug of war occurring between your heart and your head. Try not to let either side win. The key here will be balance. Find some way to create a harmony between the two directions your mind and your heart are pulling you. This lunar eclipse will prompt you toward some sort of change, and if you follow it, the next six months will be that much more fulfilling for it.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 722 ~

Sylva’s gaze flew to Nevada’s face and glued itself. “Sorry to say there is, daughter. Seems like we ain’t the only ones to be attacked.” Sylva could hear the collective breath of everyone as Nevada paused. “There’s been ten such strikes within a five hundred mile radius. And word is, there have been other areas across the continent where the robo-planes have struck with the same type of missile. Got the men keepin’ track, and gatherin’ information.” In the silence, Sylva spoke the understanding that came to her. “It’s a test of defenses. They want to know who has what.”

Zeke leaned back, breaking eye contact. Hellfire, a rat might as well be gnawing at his insides, given his impatience suddenly threatened his control. “Dang it, hang it, boys. Ain’t that the way it always is? If you got specifics start jawing. Otherwise, I’m headin’ back to my bride.” Zeke stood, and was straightening when Wes drawled, “Don’t send us to the hangin’ tree yet.” The man’s eyes glinted with his desire to talk. Zeke leaned against the transport wall, eyeing him hard. “You’ll find out robo-plane attacks took place around the world. We wanted to get hold of one...”

The Bad, Bad News you might be able to use...

FACEBOOK Creditor Warning!!!

Omygosh! don’t be on Facebook if you are behind on any of your bills. Creditors are tracking down folks, friending them, then EMBARRASSING them in front of family and friends... of course, another HORROR scenario could be a creditor who thinks you owe WHAT YOU DON’T [who among us hasn’t had that happen ~ a mistake in billing?]... and uses that reprehensible tactic against you, regardless of your innocense. This could also be used by SOMEONE who doesn’t like you. The possibilities for abuse are seemingly endless. Not to mention it could be used for blackmail. Don’t pay what *we* say YOU OWE US, and we’ll break your psyche on Facebook. Oh, never mind YOU don’t owe them a freaking cent.

DON’T ‘FRIEND’ ANYONE YOU DON’T KNOW!!! Because Creditors are using all sorts of ruses to embarrass you and get your private info.

Did you know there are more kids committing suicide now, than anyone dying in a te**orist attack?


The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire.


Wish Upon on a Blue Moon New Year...
May your most romantic dreams come true...

You know, I've wondered before what our world would have become in a matriarchal society. Who we have developed peacefully or would we too have engaged in aggresive behaviors?

hmmm...sounds like there could be a story there. What if Hera wielded the lightening bolt? Aphrodite? ;)

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I don't pretend to think there would be no violence or aggression... however, if women claimed their true power and used it for the overall good of themselves and others... no, we wouldn't be in this nightmarish world.

Good story idea! Indeed.

I thought of one where the heroine is a Seer, and on her way to another planet world, with a group of Seers. They will bring this kind of goodness to the world. However, as they travel, the heroine becomes so overcome with impressions, she needs the hero to distract her with carnal pleasures.

Serena Shay said...

:) I like that Seer idea! Are you adding it to your growing list of awesome story ideas? hehe

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena... sigh, yeah, it's been added. Dang, I so wish the time pocket would show up.

How about you? Hera with a lightning bolt... hmmm, maybe, a minor goddess who comes into her own with that type of power???

BTW, am I seeing it correctly at the Passionate Ink forum, that there are a lot more views of our ongoing serial story?
